Prismacolor Penoy

     My card today is another I made using my Prismacolor pencils. I've really enjoyed playing with them and have made several others that I will share in the future.
     I put together to stamp companies to create this card. the first being Stampendous. My friend Lynda came over to stamp with me and brought along some new stamps. This one is called Cling Fresh Peony,  Stampendous Cling Fresh Peony-Amazon, and Altenew's new dotted washi tape, Altenew- Dotted Washi Tape and Thank you from Flower arrangement die set, Altenew-Flower-arrangement-die-set,.
Other supplies used:
Prismacolor Premier soft core pencils
Michaels Black glitter washi tape
Recollections White 65# cardstock
Recollections Black  65# cardstock
MFBGOLD-1212-1 gold mirror cardstock
3M Dimensional tape
Sharpie fine tip pen black
Zig glue pen
     I colored the Peony and then traced all the lines of the flower to make then more defined, I did the same with the leaves.
     The background was very simple, I just layered the Washi tape over a piece of cardstock, smoothed it down, and trimmed the edges. Then I added the black glitter washi tape. For the Thank you I cut one in Gold and 5 in white, and using my Zig glue pen, glued them all together.  I needed the sentiment to be the same height as the flower.
     I used dimension tape and some glue to adhere the flower to the background. I needed the glue because the finish on the washi tape doesn't allow the dimensional tape to stick well, but a little white glue and it's perfect. 
 I will be entering this card in these challenges:
